JISCO bauxite company to start operations June 20

JISCO, formerly ALPART, in Nain, St. Elizabeth is said to be on track to start operations on June 20.

Mining Minister Mike Henry made the disclosure on Thursday at Metal Bulletin's 23rd Bauxite and Alumina Conference in Miami, Florida.

He said preparatory activities are in high gear and 400 Jamaicans are now employed at the plant.

Henry told the conference that JISCO is sensitising the communities around the plant and mining areas and there will be a huge demand for electrical, mechanical, civil and chemical engineers for operation and maintenance activities.
